Probably.  My guess is that Scheme is too different to emacs-lisp to
be particularly practical.  I suspect you'd be better looking at
smaller improvements like Miles' lexbind branch of emacs, which adds
optional lexical binding.  Getting that into the main branch of emacs
would be very nice, I think.  Changing to a Lisp-1 like scheme seems
likely to involve lots of work for not much concrete gain, IMHO.
